The recipe for traditional Italian pizza calls for chefs to stuff mozzarella, tomato sauce, and pepperoni into a pie crust, lock it inside a Lamborghini, and leave it to bake in the heat of a Sicilian summer. Update that eternal classic with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pizza, pasta, and more at Hello Pizza in La Canada.
Hello Pizza fuses a host of fresh, eclectic ingredients onto tasty crust foundations to create a singular pizza experience. Appetizers and spaghetti dishes pepper the menu, but the real star is the array of premium pizza pies. Dough nuts can savor their choice of three delicious pizza breads—original, stone-ground wheat, or gluten-free—all topped with 100% natural cheese. The potato gold, for example, weds mushroom and ground beef at a sweet-potato mousse altar, with misty-eyed friends corn, onion, potato, cheddar, bacon, nacho chip, and sour cream all in attendance. To produce a lighter taste and reduce calories, Hello Pizza employs a grill-baking technique in favor of conventional pizza baking—which is now known to be a powerful calorie magnet.
